Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions
Can I have a homebirth if it's my first baby?
Yes! We LOVE helping first time parents through this huge transition and journey. We also highly recommend that all first time parents especially look into taking a childbirth education class and hiring a doula (this is a great idea no matter where you decide to birth!).
What is the difference between a Midwife and a Doula?
Midwives are medical care providers. Our main job is always to make sure everyone stays safe. We can do things such as monitor your vital signs, interpret baby's heart tones, and make diagnoses and medical decisions.
Can I have a homebirth if I have had a previous C-section?
What pain relief options are available during a home birth?
Hydrotherapy, counterpressure, hypnotherapy, and position changes are some of the most common coping mechanisms our clients use. We do not administer any pain relief medications at home.
Can my family be involved in the birth?
Absolutely! Birth can be a beautiful family event if that is what you would like! Maybe your partner wants to catch, your oldest kid wants to cut the cord, grandma wants to be there watching - it is your space, so you decide who is there - not us!
